New to game programming need advice

1 post in this topic

Hey everyone :) I am new to game programming and need advice on what is the best way to learn c++/allegro together as one. Reason i say i would like to learn both together is because i find it easier to not have to learn 2 seperate things. I do have background in programming with over 6 years programming in web based languages such as PHP,JAVASCRIPT etc.. so any advice would help thanks.

I am currently doing the samething you are in exactly the same to areas.  So this is what I am doing which seems to be helping me.

 

In C++  :> I am taking code that I wrote in another language and writing it in C++.  I am taking Blocks of code that are related that I know work, and I am making them work in C++.  Here I am focusing on text only at this point so I can focus on learning the C++ language and how it relates to my game code.

 

In Allegro  >  Here I am focusing on learning implementing the Allegro Library and Puting images on the screen.  Next I will look at creating my Animations sequences in the 2D format.  I am using images from the same game, so that I know they work.  This allows me to focus on presenting these images and the animations, without  slowing myself down by worrying about the gaming code.

 

Once I am comfortable with working with both seperately then and only then will I combine the 2 together.  That is basically how I handle all my stuff.  By focusing on 1 aspect at a time, then copy/paste everything together.
